THURSDAY "LADIES ONLY" DOG HIKE at Castlewood

LADIES ONLY ON THIS HIKE!

ONE DOG PER PERSON.

ON LEASH, there might be a couple of mountain bikers.

Moderate hike up the big hill, across the ridgetop, and back down the Lone Wolf Trail to the creek. Beautiful view from the blufftop, and a reasonably quiet trail back to a spring fed creek.

Might be a little mud on the backside of the hill.  Trail is mostly level, but there is one pretty big hill to climb.  Tennis shoes best here, you might have to wade through 2" of water in the creek, if it's been raining.

Due to some serious issues on recent hikes, we need to make some revisions to our schedule.

Short "stop-n-play" at the creek to water/swim the pups, back up the level trail to the road and back to our cars.  The pups love to play and cool off in the creek, it's clear and cool and they can have fun.

This is our CREEK RAT hike, for those of you who hike with us often.

Allow 2 hours, probably won't take that long.

BRING WATER FOR YOUR DOG TO DRINK.  We'll stop at the creek, but that's towards the end of the hike, they'll be thirsty after climbing the big hill to the bluffs.

DIFFERENT PARKING LOT.........

MEET AT THE CREEK PARKING LOT THIS TIME.  IT'S THE FIRST LOT ON THE LEFT, AFTER CROSSING THE CREEK, ABOUT 1/2 MILE INTO THE PARK.  BIG PARKING LOT BY THE PAVILION/PLAYGROUND/BATHROOMS.

DO NOT GO TO THE BEACH PARKING LOT, RIVER WILL BE CRAZY AFTER ALL THE RAIN PREDICTED THIS WEEK, and that lot will possibly be flooded.

    Nice, quiet and uneventful hike. Thank you ladies! Probably a little shorter than this group likes, I'll look for another spot for us for next week. Emily, have fun in Paris! We'll see you when you get back.

    Perfect hiking weather, temps in the 50's. See you all there. Remember, meet at the parking lot just past the creek for this hike.
